Russell Westbrook is a 9x All-Star, 9x All-NBA player, 2x Scoring Champ, and 2017 MVP who has averaged a triple-double four different times throughout his career.

By most metrics, he's considered a bonafide star in this league. But, according to Shaquille O'Neal, he's nothing more than a role player.

In a chat with the LA Times, the Lakers legend made a rather shocking statement about Russ, downgrading his status from a superstar to role player for the Purple and Gold.
